The Goods and Services Tax Network (GSTN) has released guidance regarding the Geocoding Functionality for Additional Places of Business.
Let’s learn about the latest news of the GSTN geocoding advisory for additional places of business.
GSTN Extends Geocoding Functionality to Additional Place of Business Address
GSTN is delighted to announce that the geocoding feature for the “Additional Place of Business” address is now active in all States and Union Territories.
This extends the geocoding functionality that was previously introduced for the main place of business, which has been operational since February 2023.
GSTN Geocodes Over 2.05 Crore Business Addresses
GSTN has successfully geocoded over 2.05 crore addresses for both primary and secondary business locations thus far.
Furthermore, starting in March 2022, all new addresses are geocoded during GST Registration, ensuring accuracy and standardization from the outset.
Step-by-Step Guide to Geocoding Your Business Address on the GST Portal.
Here’s a concise guide on how to make use of this feature:
To access this functionality, go to the FO portal and follow this path: Services >> Registration >> Geocoding Business Addresses tab.
The system will present a geocoded address generated automatically. You can either accept it as is or make necessary modifications. In case a system-generated address is unavailable, you can manually input the geocoded address.
You can find saved geocoded address details under the “Geocoded Places of Business” tab. After logging in, navigate to My Profile >> Geocoded Places of Business.
- It’s important to note that this is a one-time task, and any address changes after submission are not permitted.
- The GST portal will display a geocoded address for taxpayers whose addresses have already been geocoded through new registration or core amendment, so there’s no need to repeat this process.
- Keep in mind that the address on your registration certificate can only be modified using the core amendment procedure. This geocoding feature will not alter previously saved addresses.
This feature is accessible to various types of taxpayers, including normal, composition, SEZ units, SEZ developers, ISD, and casual taxpayers, regardless of their current status (active, canceled, or suspended).
